vsftpd (Very Secure FTP Daemon) is an open-source FTP server application that provides a secure and efficient way to transfer files between systems over a network. It is the default FTP server in many Linux distributions due to its focus on security.
To install vsftpd on CentOS 7, follow the steps below:
Open a terminal and execute the following command to update the package list: sudo yum update
Install vsftpd using the following command: sudo yum install vsftpd
Start the vsftpd service by running the command: sudo systemctl start vsftpd
Configure vsftpd to start automatically at system boot: sudo systemctl enable vsftpd
To allow FTP connections through the firewall, use the following command: sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=ftp
Then reload the firewall to apply the changes: sudo firewall-cmd --reload
By default, vsftpd allows local user accounts to connect. You can create additional FTP users if needed or restrict access to specific users by updating the configuration file located at /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf.
To test if the FTP server is working correctly, you can use an FTP client like FileZilla or simply use the command line. Connect to your server using the IP address or domain name, and provide the appropriate username and password when prompted.
Remember to keep your vsftpd installation up to date to ensure that you have the latest security patches and features.
